How Our Switches Are Better:

  1. Genuine Carling switches – We’ll never try and pass off cheap Chinese knock-offs like some of our competitors. You’ve probably seen other sites list a switch as “fits carling”… that’s a red flag.  All our switches and covers are the genuine article.  And like all cheaply made counterfeits, you CAN tell the difference.
  2. Support – We know this product inside and out and are happy to help our customers.  Need help wiring up one of our products, just call: (843) 297-8348
  3. Guarantee – While Carling does not offer a warranty, we’re so confidant in the quality, if your switch breaks or the ink wears off within 2 years, you can return it for a free replacement!
  4. Durable UV stabilized ink – Have trouble with labels wearing off on your switches?  That’s because cheap non-UV stabilized ink was used… you won’t find that here.
  5. Hard cover style – We never use the “soft touch” style that will melt into a sticky mess after a few months in the sun.

Wiring Info & Wiring Diagram

This Courtesy Lights rocker switch has 3 terminals on the back:

  1. 12V input – terminal 2
  2. 12V output – terminal 3
  3. negative source – terminal 7

A hard copy of the wiring diagram will be shipped with this switch.  You can also find it in the product images above, or download a PDF wiring diagram here.


Contura Styles, Lenses and Colors:

This Courtesy Lights rocker switch is a Contura II style, as pictured above.  Contura II is the one with the small bumps on it.  We carry printed Contura II’s in red and blue lens options (selection from the menu above).

We also carry this label in Contura V style switch here.  The Contura V style includes a two-lamp switch, which allows a great backlighting effect for night readability.

Typical Use for a Courtesy Lights Rocker Switch:

Use this switch to turn on your downward-facing lights illuminating the deck around the boat.  Sometimes also mounted on a later, courtesy lights are one of the most common lights on a boat.

    Needed a cover that was not on the website (Livewell Fill/Aereator) and with a phone call it was added to my order. Great service!!!
    High quality and ease of installation. Wish they came with gaskets.

  2. Darrell Savoy (verified owner)

    Very impressed. Switches came 1 day earlier than scheduled. Wiring diagram was easy to understand. Installed all 5 switches in less than 20 minutes. Only way to make it easier would be to send somebody to install for me. Makes my 30 year old boat look good.

  3. Nicholas Fortin (verified owner)

    Fits perfect and looks great! Quick order processing and fast shipping!
